Madame Cannibal?

MOSCOW () -- A 76-year-old female resident of Kaliningrad has been arrested on suspicion of cannibalism, police sources for the Moscow region told Interfax on Monday.


Yelena Dalonova is thought to have murdered her husband Nikolai Dalonov, 83, Interfax reported. The pensioner's body, half of which was just a skeleton, was found last Saturday under the stairs of the Dalonovs' house.


A search of the couple's apartment revealed cans of human remains in the refrigerator, the agency said.


Dalonova has been transferred to a psychiatric clinic.
